In his editorial titled “THANKS TO ALL…”, Manoj Dhiman has written as under: “ – A News Web Portal was launched way back in July, 2012 from Ludhiana (Punjab). It was a very small beginning. But, it was not an easy start for us. We were not aware much about the online media at that time. What to talk about us, even most of the people were not vigilant about the online media six years ago. Initially, we felt that it will be easy to run a news portal. However, we had to meet with many challenges. It was not so easy task to run a news portal as it looked before its start. There was shortage of funds, manpower and all other resources. We spent our whole time, energy, money and resources on building this news portal. Finally, our efforts, hard working, support of friends, advertisers and those associated with editorial have started yielding results. Our hopes are big. The hopes are based on the faith being shown by our Readers, Advertisers and all other well-wishers. Even Analysis Data of reveals a lot about our small successful journey. The Data as on August 19, 2018 is as under: Google Page Rank (4/10), Global Rank (8,55,060), Rank in India (69,918), External Backlinks (18,56,621), Education Backlinks (133), Referring Domains (766), Education Domains (22), PR Quality (Strong) and Indexed URLs (75,743). We have our presence on social media sites such as fb (, twitter (, linkedin (,YouTube ( and some others as well. Readership is increasing day-by-day. Still, this not a big achievement as the journey is so long, this is merely one of the many milestones. During the past six years, there came many moments of frustration but we managed to overcome that situation with grace of God. Some of the people were so supportive that they acceded to our small requests for advertising with us. Perhaps they were aware about our sincerity and honesty. No media organization can survive for a long without generating revenue. That’s why we are thankful to all of our Advertisers and supportive people. Our six-year-long journey has given us an experience that good people are always there. Had there been absence of good people our survival would not have been possible. This is for the first time during the last six years that we are publishing this Souvenir on the anniversary of launch of our news portal. The basic idea behind publishing this Souvenir is to make more connectivity with our Readers, Advertisers, well-wishers, supporters and all others related. When we shared the idea of publishing a Souvenir with people, many of them gave us negative feedback on the plea that “negativity prevails in the market”. But, we remained determined. The result was that even some of those who had given negative feedback in the beginning, supported us whole heartedly. Finally, this Souvenir is in your hands. Thanks to all…”
